Jamie is currently leading the Police Partnerships Team, part of West Midlands Polices’ Neighbourhood Policing Unit for Walsall. This is a small team with responsibility for encouraging and maximising the impact of partnership working in improving the safety of everyone in Walsall. This includes seeking to improve the service given to victims of hate crime and reducing the volume and seriousness of hate crime in the borough. The team also deals with alcohol licencing matters, engagement with some community groups, supporting Neighbourhood and Street Watch Schemes, and youth crime/victim prevention work. We are based in the Civic Centre alongside Council colleagues in the Community Cohesion Team, and are keen to support Walsall for All’s objectives in order to help create a safe and secure borough where there is fair treatment of all.
